Fauré: Songs
Gérard Souzay, baritone; Jacqueine Bonneau, piano

Gérard Souzay, baritone; Dalton Baldwin, piano

Camille Maurane, baritone; Pierre Maillard-Verger, piano

Maurane's androgynous quality, which finds its match in Fauré, may be difficult for some listeners although it is emblematic of one approach to the composer. Should you be among the troubled, you'll have no difficulty listening to the early Souzay on Decca and Philips where he has the advantage of superb accompaniments and is in far superior voice than in his later remake for EMI.
